I am filled with joy when I create art. It's an emotional journey through every brush stroke and the way the artwork resonates through the viewer. My artistic style leans towards realism, focussing on still life. I am drawn to vintage and nostalgic items from my childhood. I arrange these items and photograph them in a realistic setting that I use as a reference for my final piece of artwork.
I am a full time artist residing in the leafy suburb of Mosman in Sydney. I studied graphic design and illustration at college and have always sort out creative ventures in my working life. I paint in oil and watercolour and excel in the style of contemporary realism - my paintings have an almost photo-like quality. I am drawn to antique silverware and other sentimental objects that show tarnish, patina and the wears of time but still shine.
Through my artistic journey I have looked to many contemporary realist artists for inspiration, style and techniques among a few are Christopher Stott, Robert Rosenman, Lisa Christensen and John Honeywill
